A touch of luxury after a good day's hiking.

We stayed for four nights upon recommendation from two friends and the hotel deserves the high ratings receives. This was the most luxurious and well appointed establishment that we stayed in throughout a 3 week road trip around California and, to be fair, the location and luxury goes some way to justifying the nightly rates. We certainly introduced ourselves and, naturally, became a bit addicted to the garden games available, particularly shuffleboard. I've never played this game in the UK, so over 4 nights, it ensured we avoided a post dinner crash (good food by the way) and got all the hotel guests competing! My only recommendation to the management is that for the nightly rate, they could probably include a breakfast offering in the price. Having travelled to many countries and hotels, this would be a reasonable request for the nightly rate. Top tip for guests. Only spend one day on the Yosemite Valley floor. Explore Hetch Hetchy and the Tioga Pass Road areas for the best scenery, hiking and mindfulness.

Wedding at Rush Creek

Rush Creek is a gorgeous resort just a few minutes outside of the entrance to Yosemite NP. It is by far the most luxurious of resorts in or near the park and the most modern with amenities like fast wifi, heated salt water pool and two hot tubs, all of which are open 24/7 365. Staff is friendly, rooms are nicely appointed. My wife and I planned our wedding there at Rush Creek. Our coordinator Katie was great and made herself available throughout the process. Accommodations and the venue for all of our guest were superb. Weather was a factor for the night of our welcome reception for our guests but the back up plan in place by Rush Creek was just as nice and our guests had a great time. The options and decor were amazing and everything was setup flawlessly. Guests were shuttled up a hill to a wooded outlook where everything was set up, chairs, wedding arch/ring, runner, flowers, etc... Absolutely beautiful setting The only 'cons', if they can even be considered that, is the lack of food selection. There is one restaurant/bar and grill with a limited, non changing menu. Granted you are far into the hills/mountains and it's definitely not like there is anything near that you could door dash or order. Still, that being said, I feel like they could do better by rotating their menu or offering more. A stay of more than a few days and you'll be more than bored with the food options. Also, there are NO microwaves in the rooms so there is no way of reheating any leftovers or bringing any microwavable foods for the kids (they don't allow any"cooking"or reheating in any of the rooms) They also state that there are no TVs in the rooms to encourage enjoying the beautiful surroundings and activities available, however there are rainy days and there are guests that do enjoy watching TV after a long day of excursions. Overall Rush Creek is without a doubt the best place to stay in or near Yosemite and we will definitely be staying there again.

Loved it!

Spent 5 days at Rush Creek celebrating our Dad’s 76th birthday. Loved the size of the room with two separate king size bedrooms. Beautiful pool area and two hot tubs. Close location to park and on site restaurant. Loved everything about our stay! Wonders of Yosemite tour with Rachel was a great overview of the park.

Great place to visit near Yosemite

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room is beautiful and the setting spectacular. Friendly staff and lots of amenities. Location just outside the park is convenient and recreation staff very helpful. Highly recommend. Was a little disappointed the spa was closed for a private event.

Great for relaxing and Yosemite

Enjoyed the great location for access to Yosemite while also being able to have a swim in the lovely pool after a days hiking. We stayed in the Villa which provides loads of space and a large balcony to relax on. Staff are friendly and helpful and the whole site has a feeling of being close to nature.
